NOT ON YOUR LIFE!
The Commack Coalition of Caring and the SADD Club from the high school, joined together with Northport SD, Kings Park, Harbor Fields, and Walt Whitman High School to do an environmental scan at various locations in our neighborhoods. The program called "Not On Your Life" was to put signage in local businesses regarding not selling alcohol to a minor. We had discussions regarding how to check for phony ID's, and asked them to ask for double ID. We walked together with the SCPD, and members of the Air National Guard, who are members of the CCC.

Safe Homes Brochure - Take the Pledge!

The SAFE HOMES Program is a successful national program that exists in more than 40 states. It is an effective way for parents to join together to provide a safer environment for their children. Safe Homes enables parents to take a united stand against drugs and alcohol abuse and other dangers. It empowers parents to create an environment in which drug and alcohol use by minors is not acceptable. Your child can no longer say, "You're the only parent with these rules," because you are part of a network of parents with the same rules.
